Diary Of A Pregnant Girl || Week 38 & 39


My, my, my. We are just about to cross the finish line! I am so ready to throw some fist pumps in the air and holla, "Hallelujah!".

Due Date | March 12th, 2015    (9 days!!!!)

Gender | BOY! <-- click to see our gender reveal.

Name | Maddox Brian Mills -aka- our little mad man

Size | The size of a watermelon! Whoa! Over 21" long and 7-8 lbs.

Feeling/Body| I'm just now to the point of waddling. I have so much pressure in my lower back and pelvis it's all I can do to stand. Maddox's movements are definitely much larger and more of a rolling/wave effect across my belly. I still receive some swift kicks to my ribcage simultaneous with a push of his head in my pelvis. I keep telling him if he would just come out he could stretch out all he wants.
Hormones | My tears have tamed down although I have had a few whiny fits about "being so over it". I feel shameful when I say that because I've enjoyed my entire pregnancy. I guess because we are so close I can hardly handle the anxious energy I have and the fact that my body feels so heavy and uncomfortable.

Weight | +34lbs total. I can't believe I gained 4lbs in one week.

Sleep | I have started using essential oils to help with my sleep and they work wonders! So much so that my husband noticed the change in my sleeping patterns and decided to try them himself and he's hooked. I was never a believer before, but desperate times call for desperate measures and now I believe! 

Nursery | See the full reveal here!

Fun Fact | It won't be until after his first month that he actually generates tears when he cries because their tear ducts aren't open yet. I can't wait to kiss his sweet face when he is sad and see his best pout.

Best Moment of The Week | I have two. Hearing that Maddox has dropped! That much closer! And also, Jon keeps talking to Maddox and telling him how excited he is to meet him. He mentions his birth and talks about it just as much as I do now. I just love seeing the excitement on his face when he tells me, "we will have half me, half you here in a matter of days."

Next Apt. | Friday, March 6th. Let's cross our fingers there is some dilation!

  1. You look so cute! I'm pretty sure every woman, no matter how great her pregnancy has been, starts to have moments when she's over it towards the end. So don't feel bad! And you need to post about those essential oils! I've been having a tough time sleeping and I've been super cranky running on like 6 hrs of crappy sleep a night!
